Ratings for Dr. Robert Cram
So glad Cram's out of the industry. Others in the Orthodontic community don't have much good to say about his practices. Before his forced retirement he was supposedly the head of he Orotho Society (or some trade organization); if he's the best they could get they are a hurting organization. Prior to committing to the long list of orotho work (and proposed costs) he said was required, we mentioned we were going for a second opinion and he freaked...sent us a letter telling us about how we didn't respect his knowledge and his standing in the orotho community blah blah.
Cram wanted to remove teeth in order to make room to pull other teeth down to their proper position. A second opinion told us that removal was old fashioned and out of date. Needless to say we've left Cram in our dust...there IS better out there.
after my daughter spent 14 months with braces on from a reg dentist and being told the day she got them off she got told that she would have to go see a real orthodontics ??? after the time and money spent we were not very happy, we went to go see Dr Cram from hearing such great things about him we went to him he and the staff were so understanding of our ( specially my daughter who had to go through all the braces over again! My daughter already has a beautiful smile and everything is done so professional! Thanks Dr Cram and staff!
I would not recommend Dr. Cram. Myself and my two brothers all underwent treatment under Dr. Cram. He told each of us separately that we had the "absolute worst bite" he's ever seen and cited that without ortho work our central incisors would fall out by the time we were in our 20s. I found that a bit hard to swallow. Following completion of our treatment and big $$$$ later he would not follow up with consultations with my new dentist in SK. He seems all about the $ and once that part of it is over he'd rather not have anything to do with the patient.
I went to see Dr. Cram for an estimate of work needing to be done on my teeth and its cost. He told me I would need surgery to have my jaw broken, teflon pins inserted, braces be worn for a couple of years, and all of my teeth crowned. No written estimate of costs was provided. Thankfully, I sought out more opinions and ended up seeing an orthodontist in Edmonton (one with a very good reputation) who told me that my dental problems could be solved without surgery and trauma. Sure enough, 15 months of wearing braces was enough, and my new orthodontist recommended that I have the restorative work done by a qualified prosthedontist, which I did. (Again, one out of Edmonton) I am so glad that I sought out other opinions and that I didn't take Dr. Cram's opinion as an authoritative one.
